We all know festivals are about so much more than the legendary music performances. The real entertainment is among the crowd, which turns out to be its own fashion show filled with crop top-clad celebrities and style gurus sashaying about in the world’s best Instagram sceneries.
Coachella, one of the country’s largest music festivals, kicks off the summer each year in late April. Its eclectic, psychedelic décor is a show of its own with decorations like a giant butterfly built perfectly in the middle of the crowd. Following Coachella on the East Coast is the Governor’s Ball, a music festival that takes over New York City for a weekend in June. While New Yorkers treat every day like a fashion show, this weekend brings in visitors from all over the country sporting their chicest crochet bikini tops and graphic tees. Summer music festivals allow us to embody an entirely new persona for the night (or weekend) and take fashion risks that are only acceptable in the chic, ‘70s-inspired environment of these outdoor music shows. So far, these celebs have showed us the best festival looks so far.
Kendall Jenner: Kendall is on her festival fashion A game each year from head to toe. This year she successfully took a fashion risk sporting a lace bralette and finishing the look off with a hat and layered statement necklaces, her signature festival pieces. Kendall’s bralette and high-waisted shorts statement is a trend to try at home this summer.
Alessandra Ambrosio: Alessandra put a classier twist on the crochet bikini top with a piece that resembled a dress with cutouts at Coachella. Pairing this with denim cutoffs, boots, and a fringe vest, she nailed the summer layering trend for a boho chic look. On day two of the festival, Ambrosio rocked the flower crown, denim cutoffs and kimono combo, embodying the look of a typical festival goer — as “typical” as a beautiful, famous super model can be, that is.
Kylie Jenner: Making a statement like her older sister, this year Kylie continued her signature festival look in her wigs, one made up of rainbow hues to go along with her Discount Universe evil eye bikini. Jenner featured a bright orange ‘do as well, the statement accessory for her simpler look with high waisted denim cutoffs, a boxy white crop top, and sparkling silver choker. While her outlandish hair color/bikini combo may not catch on as a street style trend anytime soon, Jenner’s ‘90s inspired festival look is an easy and fashionable outfit to try at home.
Ellie Goulding: Goulding sported a different look than most of her celebrity counterparts this year, bringing light to the athleisure trend. With her metallic silver shorts and technicolor windbreaker jacket and sneakers at Coachella, she had the perfect sporty chic look. Metallic garments are a great way to brighten up looks this summer and into fall!
